MILWAUKEE -- Two suspects have been arrested in connection with Tuesday's sudden death of a 7-week-old infant on Milwaukee's north side. Milwaukee police say the death is now being investigated as a homicide.

The child died at WHO'S LUVIN YOU daycare - located in the 7800 block of W. Villard Avenue on Milwaukee's north side. 

According to Milwaukee police, the infant, Savaiyah A. Reid, sustained blunt force trauma injuries to her body. The two suspects are a 37-year-old woman and a 17-year-old girl.
